We're Just Here to Help… Like a Minion!

“Help me… help you!”

Remember that classic scene from the movie “Jerry Maguire”?

Maguire’s big-time baller client just wasn't getting it and needed a little nudging. Just a little motivation to get his act together.

“Help me… help you!” Isn't that a great attitude to have?

We may not like to admit it but we all need a little help sometimes. There’s no shame in that game.

But what if we got up each morning thinking… “How can I be of help to OTHERS today?”

Kind of like those adorable little Minions in “Despicable Me”— in a good way of course.

I know if I started my day with more of a “help me help you” attitude, I'd be inclined to be a bit more attentive to my wife in the morning before she’s off to work. I’d probably pet the dog a little longer too. Hell, I think I'd even be more generous with the road space while driving to the office, road hog that I am.

Generally, I’d have an overall better outlook simply by starting my day with a helpful attitude.

When you think about it, that’s what we humans do best. We help.

When we help we feel better. Cool thing too is that when we help others, not only do we feel better, but the person we helped feels darn good too! And chances are if they’re feeling good they'll pay it forward in some way. Pretty cool, huh?

Makes sense though. After all — we're just here to help.

So go ahead. Minion up and help someone. It'll make your day and you just might make theirs too!
